“Qué linda”

Today was hermosa. (“qué linda” Emma would say) 70 degrees, sunny and perfect. I dressed for the weather appropriately (skirt, top, cardigan & sandals) but then stuck out like a sore thumb amongst the Spaniards who were still wearing their winter jackets.Are you kidding me?That’s just reason #1840187 I will never fit in here.

El Balcon

I came home from school and instead of going to the beach, I decided to study on the balcony. Unfortunately, en la sombra (shade) it’s a little chilly, so I ended up inside, but still had the same view. I drank 3 cups of tea and ate my cookies. Which, I love las canelas (cinnamon cookies) and the ones that apparently have manzanas (apples) in them (don’t ask), but I am dying for some chocolate chip cookies. (I also have an insatiable craving for chocolate cake but that’s another story)


I really miss cooking already, but thinking about these cookies makes me miss it all the more! That is one of the few things I miss about home – 24/7 access to a kitchen. :)
Emma & Ricardo had gone grocery shopping and Ryan was asleep so the apartment was silent. It was so incredibly peaceful and made studying the Spanish Civil War a little more bearable. :)
